I moved into my apartment yesterday, and had zero time to practice magick. I barely even finished yesterday’s post.
But you know what I did a lot of? Manifesting. Because I had to pick out sheets and furniture and a bunch of other stuff. In other words, I didn’t have time set aside to practice, but I still did plenty of magick.
Once you’re good enough with a skill to use it on trivial errands, you wind up using it constantly. It doesn’t feel like practicing, it just feels like doing your errands. I call it “passive practice.”
But it does require some planning. Here’s an example:
Imagine you want to learn some amazing skill based on communication, like mind reading. Instead of just focusing on that amazing-but-difficult skill, pick something easy to learn that’s also based on communication, like manifesting. Focus on that easy skill until it’s useful for trivial tasks, then start using it. Once you get used to solving problems the skill, you won’t have to set aside time to practice it, you’ll just use it as you do everyday tasks.
Now that you’ve freed up your focusing-on-magick practice time, pick a slightly-harder communication-based skill — one you can learn in a few weeks, now that you’ve been practicing manifesting — learn it, start using it for errands, and repeat. Eventually, that amazing skill will be within reach, and along the way, you’ll have put in a lot of extra practice time without having to allocate hours every day for magick. Also, you’ll learn a new useful skill every few months, and seeing that progress will help you keep working.
Practicing more doesn’t require putting more effort in. It just requires getting good enough with a skill to use it even when you’re not trying to practice.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
